EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SEED PRIMING TREATMENTS ON ACTIVITY AND ISOZYME PATTERN OF ANTIOXIDANT ENZYMES IN OKRA
Abstract: Effect of seed priming treatments and soaking durations on activity and isozyme pattern of antioxidant enzymes was studied. Four treatments:hydropriming, osmo-priming with 5% PEG, osmo-priming with 10% PEG and distilled water with soaking durations from 6 to 48 h at 6 h interval h were used. Dry okra seeds (unsoaked) seved as control. Priming increased the activity of antioxidant enzymes. Maximum increase was observed with T2. Seeds soaked for 24 h showed maximum activity Priming with T2 treatment for 24 h soaking gave the best results, followed by T1 and T3, while unsoaked control seeds proved to be the poorest.
